thanks very much for your note. My wife is descended from Joseph and Eliza Eve through their eldest daughter Ada. Ada in fact emigrated to Paris (in France) where she died in the 1930s. I was interested about when Eliza emigrated to the US because of a letter we have. This letter is dated 1/5/1904 and is from Eliza Eve (Day) to her daughter Ada in Paris describing in considerable detail her husband Joseph's funeral. He died 24/3/1904. Neither William nor Eliza junior came to their father's funeral and I was looking for evidence of why not. It is clear that William was already in the US but I was not certain about Eliza jnr. From the letter I think she was somewhere nearer than the US hence my q about whether you knew when she emigrated.
Incidentally I have visited and photographed Eliza (Day)Eve's and Joseph Eve's grave also photographed 5 North Ockendon Street which is still there. I can send by e-mail if you are interested.
